Re: Help needed with text x2

I looked at that picture four times until I saw the face in the hair. I kept seeing a flamingo bent over.
Sorry I cannot help, I do not use Inkscape.

Re: Tipeee FIRE PIT !

Could the pipes be copper? I know that some will put rubber gardenhose pieces into copper pipe shorts and they make pretty colours in the fires.

Re: Pileated oodpecker

@Sphurley what program did you use to do that conversion?
I have not found it necessary, I use sheetcam it can use svg files. I use Qcad if I need to draw something technical.

Pileated oodpecker

I have built a couple, they drove the neighbours hunting dogs nuts until they realized it was not going to move. The squirrels and a real Pileated checked it out as well.

Re: Attechin 2 metal pieces with space between them for effect

Not knowing how big and heavy the pieces are.... I use 3m ultra high adhesion tape. You can purchase it in different widths and thicknesses.I have a whole lot of 1/6 thick, two layers would give you what you need. It is good for powdercoated surfaces and is also very heat resistant. I use it for sti...

I would never use it and I don't think I am elite member, I can be number two to further the trek to number 17! Cool looking tool.

Just found out I am an Elite member! Still have no need though.

Cat

Hope this works! The cat was drawn by a friend while she was in Mexico so I could try scanning and cutting, I thought it was cute. The edges are shaky, I know how to do them smooth now. The shaky sort of ads to the fur look. David http://www.plasmaspider.com/images/mexicat.png mexicat.svg

table sludge disposal

What do you do with your table sludge? I cleaned out my table and was surprised at how much crud there was, must use it more than I realize.
The dropouts are easy to grab and recycle, what do you do with the wet heavies?

Pieces I cannot get into the sandblast cabinet I scuff lightly with an old flap disc or sanding disc. I wash everything with acid to get rid of the millscale first, even pieces to be sandblasted. I use an old disc so the roughed metal is not so gouged it shows through the powder. I have a couple dif...

I got out the torch and was amazed at how durable and heat resistant that coating is! Yes it took a lot of time to burn it all off, and it warped. So I got to beat it flat again. I think that simply cutting another one would have not taken that much longer. I recall cooking the coating off once in t...

No problem, a few well placed whacks with a hammer and it flattened right out. Acid wash for the mill scale, sandblast and ink black coating. It looks like i...

Re: Coat Hook Design Needed

Much appreciated! I shrank the size down a bit and welded the hook onto two magnet cups, powdercoated and voila!
Many campgrounds seem to not have hooks in the showers anymore.
I would post a picture but my camera calved again.
